He is correct. You have one gold
medal. The other two medals are silver and bronze.
well he does have you there Klobby!
now back onto thread.. either this was a sign of insufficient Mathematical acumen, or it is a sign of an inherent lack of linguistic comprehension.
Take your pick... traditionally it has been perceived that there is a gender based biological predisposition: with greater spatial skills favouring boys mathematically and girls having more skill in language and writing.
However, though this general dichotomy of gender aptitude may be provable empirically, it may simply be due to social exposure and have no basis in biological limitation.
To cut a long story short: because Klobber was not allowed to experiment with Lego as a little girl, she can not add up.
But again i reiterate, in my opinion, it is not necessary to be made totally aware of peoples gender, half the fun is not really knowing and trying to guess using similar stereotypes to those illustrated above
